This was the 2nd time for me to the summit, this time I took my children aged 5 & 7, and the in-laws, age 70 & 74. The first time just my husband and I went, we found the start of the trail next to peak haven, up past gingerland police station, and did the trek ourselves. Anyone who's got... More

We took the 3+ mile hike up to the first waterfall in Nevis. It is a strenuous hike but with a good guide and some time achievable. The scenery along the way is lovely and the waterfall is beautiful. Colis Caines was a very informative and patient guide.

Climbed Mt. Nevis in Dec. 2014 with Sunrise Tours. Agree with all recent reviews but would emphasize that this is a CLIMB not a hike and sturdy boots and long, trekking pants are necessary as is a guide. Gloves would have been welcome because the ropes and roots are hard on the hands. The descent is far harder than the... More

I wanted to review this, as before I hiked this some of the reviews had me very nervous that it was going to be too hard, but it really isn't. I hiked this with my 10 and 12 year old sons and 16 year old nephew. I am a 42 year old woman. I am pretty fit, and the kids... More

Climbing to Nevis Peak is a challenging adventure and hiring a guide is an absolute must. We used Reggie of Nevis Adventure Tours. The trail is not marked and many parts are overgrown with the lush flora and fauna of the rainforest. As many have stated before 90% of the accent is a climb, straight up at times, using only...

This was on my husbands bucket list😳 after reading the reviews I wasn't sure if I could do it or even wanted too 😉 but he jumped out of a plane with me so I decided I owed him :) I had stressed for weeks but found "Reggie" and he convinced me you only live once and nothing in life... More

My wife and I "climbed" up to the peak today with Reggie from Nevis Adventure Tours. It was an amazing experience but these reviews are spot on, it is a challenging climb not a leisurely hike. It is a steep ascent and decent using only rocks, roots, ropes and sound advice from Reggie. No chance we could have done this... More

If you like hiking and a challenge and are reasonably fit then you must scale the 3232 feet of Nevis peak. A guide is essential as there are several meandering paths you could take through the rainforest. The guide explains the history of the island, flora and fauna so adds to the experience. Make sure you have a pair of... More

Nevis Peak is gorgeous and the climb is exciting. There's a very capable guide named Reggie whose cool and makes it even more fun. It is a bit challenging but the awesome feeling of sitting in the coolness of the clouds and signing your name in the book at the top makes it worthwhile. Don't be afraid to get dirty,... More

Where to start, first read the reviews on this, they are accurate. Its not a hike by any means but a Climb up cliffs of roots, mud, and ropes. You will be covered in mud by the time you come back down. The trip to the top starts off up a nice a size trail but quickly the trail becomes... More
